  1. hey computer tom com   The newest, and probably in the middle in terms of ease of learning and speed of writing, is Centennial Edition. It would likely seem a little outdated to you, too.   Diamond Jubilee and Centennial are very similar from what I can gather.   Diamond Jubilee books are available for $1.00 on abebooks.com, and Centennial books start at about $30 — they were always more expensive.   Frankly, I'd suggest DJ or Simplified — DJ would be a little bit easier to learn,  but lots of books available cheap for both DJ and simplified. But you'd find both those versions (Diamond Jubilee 75 anniversary @1963 first edition) and Simplified 1949 first edition.   Good luck!

  2. Oops, losing my mind and my thread   "you'd find both those versions (Diamond Jubilee 75 anniversary @1963 first edition) and Simplified 1949 first edition…"   you'd find both those versions very outdated, and they'll probably make you laugh.

    From a Pitman writer's point of view–who admires and has studied the history of Gregg–I agree with John.

    DiamondJubilee is an interesting animal; by itself, its apogee is 120-140wpm, but the expert version can be cranked up to 180wpm or so. It's a very versatile system, plus, it's pretty easy.

    Please keep us in touch with your progress…
